Well, the month is almost gone but my goals were (1) to complete up through week 6 of my half-marathon training plan, (2) to put in 200+ miles on the bike, (3) shed 5 lbs of that winter weight, and (4) improve overall physical fitness.
Mission accomplished on all points, thanks to the grace of God!
"Rather train yourself for godliness; for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come" (1Timothyï¿½4:7-8)
"Jesus answered, 'The most important [commandment] is, 'Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength'" (Mark 12:29-30).
My goals for March (let's hope it's not a windy one!) 1) 160 miles (mostly singletrack but whatever I can get I will take) 2) Ride commuter loop once- gear up for 'big day' when it's finally warmer in the morning 3) Drink water lalalalalala- work up to 80 ounces per day
Eat right. No fries.
Yup that's about it!
The only way out is through...

I'm averaging about 200 miles per month on the spin bike, although since tracking spin miles is kind of an approximation, I ride for time; not miles. Would like to increase my miles to 250.
My wishful goal is to get to ride outdoors, instead of spending hours on the spin bike. With the 130 inches of snow we have had here though, Spring is going to have to deliver some serious heat to get that all melted by the end of March.
